Libra - April 2019
Hi Libra! April is a time for focussing on your relationships, as the Sun directs his fiery energy towards your house of partners! The days up to the 21st are all about letting your other half know what you want; taking the lead in your love interactions will come naturally to you now and you will be happy to guide your love life in the direction you want it to take. The new Moon on the 5th is a favourable time for meeting someone new, or starting a fresh page in a current relationship, as you put the past behind you and move forward together. The Sun does come into conflict with the Moon’s karmic nodes between the 8th and 16th of the month, and this could create arguments with your partner over family issues. What this comes down to is jealousy around how much time and energy they are investing in things that aren’t you! A compromise really needs to be reached.
Saturn and Pluto are currently battling for the top spot in your domestic zone, but this month they will both lose power, as they slow down in preparation to turn retrograde after the 26th. This could put family problems in a frustrating place, as you suddenly recognise the extent of your commitments and responsibilities to relatives, and yet feel powerless to escape from these burdens! Stresses at home might make it more difficult to relax for a while, too. Once these Zodiac heavyweights settle into retrograde motion in early May, you will enter a period of reflection on how you can improve familial relationships, and this will feel like a more productive period. With both Saturn and Pluto now aspecting the south node until November, there is much work to do on issues of control, possessiveness and trust in this part of your life.
The Moon cycle culminates on the 19th with yet another full Moon in your sign. Repeated lunar activity in the same part of your chart can indicate that you didn’t quite achieve what you wanted the first time around, and there is more work to be done to clear the way. It seems that your need for solitude and a spiritual recharge, which was so prominent in mid-March, did not result in the amendments to your personal life which you hoped for. You tried to put yourself first but for some reason it simply didn’t happen. Another opportunity will arise now to break away from the universe and all its demands and really think about where you are headed. It’s important that this time you grasp this chance, because it will be difficult to move forward spiritually, without the clarity of thought that this moment allows.
With Venus beautifying your work zone until the 20th of April, tackling those mundane tasks and chores should be much easier, and you will find you get along with most people who pass through your world. Working in dirty, cramped or excessively noisy conditions will be especially tough at this time, as your sensitivity to your environment is enhanced. Venus and Neptune form a romantic conjunction between the 6th and 15th which is fabulous for starting work on artistic ventures, the atmosphere around you will be highly conducive to creative ideas. Venus also links with Saturn and Jupiter from the 11th to 19th, and these connections are fortunate for working from home or with a family member. Just watch out for gossip among work colleagues during this week, and be careful with whom you share personal information. Not everyone has your integrity and professionalism! Have a marvellous month, Libra!
